Law firm Trethowans appoints experienced private client specialist


Trethowans, a leading law firm in the South with an office in Bournemouth, has appointed a new partner with over ten years of private client experience.

Adam Scott, who lives in Christchurch, specialises in providing advice to high-net-worth individuals relating to wills, trusts and probate, powers of attorney and complex inheritance tax issues. He joined Trethowans’ well established team of 13 private client lawyers in January, to build a new private client offering in Bournemouth.

Having previously held positions at directorship and partnership level at other renowned law firms in the local area, and jointly headed up one of the largest private client teams on the south coast, Adam has a great deal of expertise that will stand him in good stead at the firm.

“I’ve always seen Trethowans as a place I would like to work; it’s such a forward-thinking law firm that takes the time to expand organically and as a result attracts and retains the best staff,” said Adam.

“It also specialises in many different industry sectors, so when clients need different services they can be provided quickly and efficiently. Trethowans has an outstanding reputation and the team has made me feel very welcome – I’m very glad I made the move!”

The UK went back into lockdown just as Adam joined, but he says the firm is perfectly set up for remote working and he hasn’t experienced any challenges as a result. He is looking forward to meeting clients and colleagues in person but, in the meantime, he’s using yoga to stay mentally fit and healthy.

Adam has an excellent understanding of the business implications on personal affairs such as inheritance tax, wills, trusts and probate. So, he will work closely with the Bournemouth office’s existing corporate team to serve high-net-worth clients.

Chris Whiteley, Trethowans’ managing partner, added: “I am very pleased to welcome Adam to the firm. He is passionate about helping clients put their personal affairs in order and is skilled at putting them at ease when it comes to discussing what are often sensitive issues. We are looking forward to seeing him build his team and are sure that his clients will benefit from his considerable knowledge and experience”
